On Monday, it also caused normal citizens to recreate the scenario in order to prove to their buddies that even THEY could have made the kick that Walsh missed.
A YouTube user named "Koleman Jones" posted a video and explained that his mechanic, "Trent," was running his mouth at work about Walsh and said he could make the 27-yard field goal laces in. So they did what anyone would do: They made "Trent" prove it. The guys went out to a local field, marked off a 27-yard field goal in the snow, had a guy dressed in a tie hold the ball laces in, put two "referees" at the goal post to judge the kick and told "Trent" he had to wear a Steelers hat for a week if he missed.

What happened? The mechanic, in work boots and all, drilled it! Of course, this is not exactly the same as kicking a field goal in an NFL playoff game but funny nonetheless.
Enjoy the video (note: some NSFW language at the end):
